are including book slip notices in fast track quarterly summaries and also the sfmta rpp program, renewal notices. we're using the existing meters by the plate inside the dome as well as stickers, decals on the meter face itself to notify the public of this upcoming change. and we are also issuing announcements through press releases at all of our social media outlets and our sfmta website. and we also will be doing a mass e-mail blast announcement to the various parties, stakeholders, including the board of supervisors, merchants, neighborhood groups, civic and religious organizations. excuse me. we also plan to have our parking control officers after the january 6 date to have a three-week basically grace period starting on january 6, 13th and also the 20th. and those three sundays we will not be citing formally violations, but instead issuing a friendly courtesy notices of the violation and the need to start complying. again, the decals on the meters of the new hours and the enforcement times will stay put on the meters. we have also met at your suggestion with a panel of religious and
by the sfmta payable by the sfmta to aon insurance is $8,2 80,000 and that's shown in table 2 on page 5 of our report. and then we also point out on the last page of the report, page 7 under policy consideration, we state that based on an entry by the budget analyst office report, they expended 9,271,240 on the first tier of excess liability insurance which is 5 37,510 less than the existing not to exceed authorized amount of 9.8 million. normally we would make a recommendation, then, to reduce the requested -- the not to exceed new requested amount of $18 million, 18,88 7,750. [speaker not understood]. however, the department and the city attorney's office has explained to us that by making such an amendment, that would delay implementation of obtaining this insurance which is needed on a timely basis. so, therefore, we have suggested a result for us which is shown on the bottom of page 7 of our report, quote, for the resolve of the san francisco municipal transportation agency acknowledges that the needed aon contract expenditures are $17,55 1,240 which is 5 37,510 less than the contract not
in the ground object columbus would require the sfmta to compensate the contractor for the loss of resale value to machines, removing the tbm trailing gear, and also could cause some potential schedule delays to the existing tunnel contract and station work. option 4 is removing the tunnel blowing machines at 17 31 powell street, commonly known as pagoda palace. this would require additional study. the property is a former cinema, it's currently empty and dee cap itherctiontion, however, the property owner has obtained the approvals from the planning department to redevelop the property at the mixed use retail and residential development condominiums over some ground floor retail. * dee cap it it would require demolishing the existing building. it would impose minimal traffic impacts to columbus avenue. and would not preclude a future extension of lrv service to fisherman's wharf. currently the impact of the project budget would be about $3 million and it will also require the appropriation of additional local money to secure the rights of the property from the current owner. finally, the last
oversee the sfmta which is the agency that is charged with implementing the city's transit first policy. and what our goal, what the city's goal and the transit first policy is is to make sure that everybody can get around san francisco, that everyone can get to where they need to go. it is an important part of making the economy of san francisco work, to making the quality of life good and better. but it's not just get around san francisco any old way. this is san francisco, and we have values that we bring to our transportation system. we want people to get around in a way that steps lightly on the environment. we want people to get around in ways that are enjoyable. and that really contribute to what makes san francisco special, such as our wonderful cable cars. but above all, we want to make sure that people can get around the city safely. it's no good to have a great transportation system if people can't get around safely. people need to not only be able to be safe, but to be able to feel safe, and nowhere is that more important than when you're on foot because that is when you're
that sfmta is doing something, and where this is going to go. and i think that's important that you get a presentation from her in your january 15th meeting about what's happening with that. because we still haven't had any -- the formal discussion about how to deal with that, although the cpuc has taken some action if you read about that. the next issue is the football games coming up. as you know, they're playing miami this weekend at home and they're most likely going to be in one roof game for sure and probably going to host it. and i'm concerned about there should be some -- can be police officers hired to help monitor the taxi service at the ballpark starting late in the third quarter after the game, during the game and after the game in order to make sure that the legal taxis get the fares before rather than the illegal taxis and the vehicleses that are not licensed to pick up just by showing up * without an actual appointment to pick somebody up. and you know the law. so, i urge you to make sure that there's tough, stricter enforcement to help the 49ers in terms of getting bett
it was omitted, even though it was a unanimous choice. so, it seems like we still don't have sfmta's ear for community input. and i'd like to encourage the organization to spend more time and concerns. i think you're going to get a good start today. but the things you have on your agenda you're going to be voting on options 3 or 4 or possibly falling back to option 1. and i think 3 or 4 would probably be reasonable. i just wanted to say if these fall through and you decide to revert back to option 1, i think you'll have a lot of opposition in north beach again [inaudible]. >> thank you, sir. >>> and just as a last comment, please do stop, reinitiate communication with the neighbor. >> thank you. [speaker not understood]. >> stephen taylor, [speaker not understood]. >>> good evening. my name is stephen tabor. central task force, i'm also the transportation chair for russian hill neighbors. you'll be hearing from russian hill neighbor president so i will confine my remarks to spur. spur has supported this project vigorously since its inception. we have supported the four corridors plan whi
, she also oversees sfmta enforcement, the parking and traffic control officers who are sometimes out there at the busiest intersections making sure people can get across safely. and i do want to reemphasize the point, reading that text message is not more important than your getting across the street safely. so, if there's one take away here, it's please, everybody needs to be alert of their surroundings. if you have a lot of different modes of transportation that come together in our dense little city, we need people to be alert and to pay attention. the chief mentioned some of the data that's guiding the work of the police department. our city traffic engineer ricardo laya has developed some data that will help us target the resources where they can be most effective. but a great partner that's really brought a kind of higher level of data analysis into the picture is the mta's co-lead of the mayor's pedestrian safety task force, and that's the department of public health. so, we're happy to have thomas aragon here from dph.
